Woah! I remember this game!

It was kind of overshadowed by contemporary games like Tyrain, but a chance to replay it is nice.

Now here's an example of a man who really should have hired a publicist. I've seen the kind of rhetoric from him that I've seen all too often online. Not to excuse that kind of behaviour, but there's a big difference from being an anonymous douchebag and a public figure. A little filtering would go a long way.

Though I do respect him as a game designer, as Fez was quite entertaining.

My stomach turns every time I see more of this F2P money gouging.

I want to play a fun space sim, but feel deeply uncomfortable with games that punish the player either by money or time.

At some point, one does need to ask: How many quirky 2D platform-puzzler games or big military shooters do I really need?

Videogames, even good ones, are trivially cheap these days, and I've turned down a lot of bundles even when they were $1 (or less, sans Steam keys) because they just didn't sound that interesting, and that's a big problem with the me-too approach of games these days.

Indie or not, I really don't care. I just want my games to offer something fresh and fun. I bought both Antichamber and Far Cry Blood Dragon on day 1. A one-man team vs the might of Ubisoft... I don't really care, but both of them offered a novel experience, which is what I wanted. Though even being novel isn't as important as being [i]good[/i]... I'd gladly take another iterative release of a Bioware-style D&D 2.5 game

Though I guess I'm somewhat anti-indie... If it isn't published by Valve on Steam, I'm a lot less likely to buy it

With games these days, it seems like they always make an SP game with multiplayer tacked on, or an MP game with singleplayer tacked on. I'm glad that they're skipping the tacked on portion and putting their resources in one spot.

Now, as for RtCW, if I recall correctly, the SP and MP portions of the game were handled by different teams, and we were really lucky that the multiplayer turned out as well as it did... I really miss that game. The flamethrower was so fun to use in close quarters, because even if you died, it really messed up the enemies for other people to take them out.

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise and KRUNCH sound interesting, but then I look at my list of games, and realizes that I haven't beaten VVVVVV or even started Super Meatboy yet.

Nope. I've got too many games for this pack to even be worth five bucks.

I always at least check out reviews for games in bundles like this one, and with to the question "am I likely to play anything here?" is a resounding No.

I just barely started The Walking Dead, and am miles away from even looking at Gemini Rue (the predecessor and arguably better than the one here).

It's great that they're making the financial cost of gaming be a non-issue in general, but the time commitments aren't getting any lighter, so unless a game offers something special, I can't bother to buy it, no matter how cheap it is.

Still, I believe in giving credit where it's due, and wish that they offered a way to up your contribution on a given bundle after the fact. After a game like Unepic, I did indeed feel like giving the developer more money for their work, because I really appreciated what they pulled off.

Hmm... Why no Raiden 2?

I gave the game a shot, since, well, I loved Raiden 2, and it controls better than I thought it would.

I decided to buy this one because I liked Geneforge 4 from the previous bundle. The first of the Avernum trilogy seems to be the one that they put the most effort into, so I'll play through that when I get a chance.

There are way too many games for me to keep up with, but I've been curious about the Sam and Max games for a while. I never played any of them, and $5 seems reasonable.

...Though I'm still not sure if I'll actually get around to playing it

If they're 98% completed, I reckon that it's about time for a cease-and-desist order to show up.

...Oh, wait. This is Valve. They actually like their fans.

I can't handle caffeine very well, but I like to have a cup of decaf french press in the mornings.

I was a fan of space shooters back in the dos days, and checked out the SOL Exodus demo during the Steam summer sale. It was rather flawed, and I opted out of the $10 bundle that it was a part of, but with this one being $5, I'll give it a shot.

I'll definitely get this one eventually, if it shows up on Steam. It was only a couple of years ago that I replayed Baldur's Gate 1/2, but I know that I will want to again.

What exactly is the "sweet price" for SR3? I think it's been on sale for as low as $15 before.
I'll pass on SR3 at *any* pricepoint (not because it's bad, but because if I'm lucky, I can play one game per month) but for me, anything over $10 usually doesn't warrant consideration.

Even if Tribes:Ascend is good, if you do sink $60 into it (the same as a "normal" game) over half the weapons are still locked.

"you can buy them with XP" is kind of silly when you consider that it can take a dozen hours to unlock one gun.

And it'll probably be several years before my computer will be able to run it properly. ARMA 2 was a beast in terms of system requirements. I won't believe their posted requirements for a second.

You know what they need to do? Trademark every word in the English language, so that new products will need to exclusively contain made-up words.
